Jenny Santellano- A Poem


Only The Dead Know
 
Under the night sky
 
I stand
alone
 
and escape
to a place
in my mind
where there are
no human beings
to desecrate
my soul
 
There I have
the clarity to see
why we all dance
in the same circle
 
We live
halfheartedly
in a world
of narcissistic
nightmares,
where vengeance
and brutality
reign supreme
 
Every one of us is
an abandoned child
 
It seems our existence
is meaningless
without the demise
of our fellow
brothers and sisters
 
It is only then
that we begin
to cherish
one another
 
It’s a lesson we will
never learn-
Only the dead know
 
Death breathes life
upon the living
